The article reports that 18,000 pounds was realized for Westmoor Woodland when it was auctioned by Iain Skinner of Joplings at Thirsk, North Yorkshire in November 2005. The woodland is a Scots pine plantation of three hectares. The auction attracted foresters, farmers, agents as well as those interested in shooting or conservation.

    Abstract In 1995 a species/provenance test was established in the state of Puebla, Mexico to assess and compare the growth of Pinus greggii var. australis , P. maximinoi , P. patula and P. tecunumanii , including 10, 5, 11 and 4 provenances of each species, respectively. Each provenance test lot...

    The effect of different understoreys on the early growth and quality of radiata pine (Pinus radiata) in a silvopastoral system was evaluated in Canterbury, New Zealand. Fitted models successfully represented the effect of understorey on the growth (basal area and height) and a quality of trees...

    We evaluated silvicultural thinning of pine plantations in order to determine the extent to which plantations treated in this way showed a greater structural similarity to natural stands. Specifically, we tested for differences in community structure (increase of DBH, increase of height and...

    A randomized sample of 250 loblolly (Pinus taeda L.) and shortleaf (Pinus echinata Mill.) pine ring counts was collected from the Good and Poor Farm Forestry compartments on the Crossett Experimental Forest. These mature, pine-dominated stands have been managed using uneven-aged silviculture...

    The article discusses the importance of initial spacing of radiata pine based on the evolution of approaches from the 1890s to 1960s and its implications on understanding radiata pine silviculture in New Zealand. Correlating proper initial spacing with a final crop stocking of high quality...

    Effects of irrigation and liquid fertilization on fine root (< 1 mm) production and longevity, and fine root (< 0.5–2 mm) biomass were studied in a Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst.) stand in northern Sweden. Fine root length production and longevity were measured by the...

    We clarified the differences in root-tip diameter (RTD) among tree and shrub species in an Abies forest. To evaluate the effects of sampling month and tree size on RTD, we measured the root-tip diameters of mature individuals of nine woody species and sapling individuals of two Abies species in...

    The relative effects of irradiance and soil water on alley-cropped herbage are poorly understood. Our objective was to determine effects of irrigation on herbage productivity when tall fescue [Lolium arundinaceum (Schreb.) Darbysh.] was grown in two sites, a meadow and a loblolly pine (Pinus...

    I investigated the effects of stem wood on enchytraeid abundance and size distribution in a Norway spruce forest after clear- cutting. Eighteen plots (16 m2) were prepared and planted with Norway spruce according to normal forestry practice and pieces of logs discarded by the logging machine...
